Awful was too harsh but given your status as a Rangers fan should I take anything you say about their prospects seriously? He had a sub-par freshman season - but use whatever adjective you'd like. He wasn't good at either WJC camp and he had a very up-and-down season at Minnesota last year. It's not a good year for someone with his size and skating ability to take a step backwards offensively and to not take a step forwards in any other regard.

I don't expect that to last though as Skjei should get more opportunity this year with Minnesota and won't need to adjust to the college game. He had a strong WJC camp and will be on the team barring a disastrous season. But that doesn't change the fact that he didn't have a good year last season.
